A group of House Democrats on Thursday attacked the Senate filibuster at a press conference, saying the 60-vote-hurdle legislation in the upper chamber is "racist" and alleging that Americans don't care about procedure in Congress.

Reps. Cori Bush, D-Mo.; Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash.; Jason Crow, D-Colo., and others spoke in front of the Capitol. They discussed a letter circulated among House Democrats pushing Democrats in the Senate to end the filibuster.

"Everything we love is at stake," Bush said. "Senate Republicans are using the filibuster to deny our people not just everything we love, but everything we need." 

Bush continued that Americans elected Democrats in Congress "with a mandate to transform this society." Bush alleged that Republicans are blocking legislation on elections, police reform, "common-sense gun control," "making D.C. the 51st state" and more.
